One of the best means of selecting a career is to find out what people in possible careers of interest are doing. What does their job description include? What skills are necessary? What is the most significant aspect of the Wittenberg relative to their career? Do they travel? Who do they interact with professionally? These sorts of questions can be answered by alumni themselves through the Tiger Career Network or by simply culling the information available on campus, in the Career Center or in the respective department or program offices, or online, on the World Wide Web.
